The MO CIT Council has identified a list of trained behavioral health professionals who
specialize in helping first responders struggling with depression, anxiety, relationships,
post-traumatic stress symptoms, and more. The providers on this network understand our
unique professional culture and are trusted and vetted by first responders.
The First Responder Provider Network (FRPN) is considered a self-referral source.
Most FRPN clinicians have a private practice.
Make sure to follow these steps when contacting (calling, leaving a voicemail, or emailing) a clinician from the FRPN list to ensure you are a priority:
When contacting a clinician, let them know you are a first responder. Something as simple as, "I'm a first responder and would like to make an appointment."
Mention how quickly you need to be seen.
"EMDR and this grant has helped me out in more ways than I could have ever expected. I am at a point mentally that I never thought I would get to in my life. Life is by no means fair, but it doesn't mean you can't get the help you need, and this grant made that possible for me. It has helped me change my outlook on life for the better."
“I’m doing really good since our visit!!!! No nightmares since our visit either. Work has calmed down, and I’m taking less medication than I’ve taken in a year if I even take any now at all. Thank you for the opportunity to get help. I look forward to seeing you in December.“
"I really appreciate all the help you have given me. You have helped me understand myself a lot more and given me great tools to overcome my past issues. I am so grateful for this opportunity to have counseling with you. God Bless!"
"I would like to say that this service has been very helpful to me. I'm learning tools to use on how to manage stress, to recognize patterns that lead to stress. Also, understanding the difference between anxiety and stress and the effects that are caused by both."

Time to have a heart to heart, with your mind.
